Oliver Hall, Ultamation’s MD explains: “It’s funny how the excitement builds, slowly at first, as the awards get started until the moment your category gets announced and your heart starts racing. Then you see the amazing shortlist and think, ‘Oh well, we did well to get this far.’ Then you have about 10 seconds of feeling a bit deflated, until they read out your name and the whole table explodes!”
To coincide with the European Crestron Master Training, taking place in Madrid from 21st-23rd May, we are offering Crestron programmers special deals on two products.
Since 2010, Ultamation are proud to have won over 10 industry awards. Whilst we are delighted with the physical award that we receive, it means a lot more to us than just another piece of silverware in the cabinet.
Over the past few years we have been working hard on developing our Graphic User Interface (GUI). All of that hard work has been rewarded as we have just been awarded the Crestron Global Award for Best GUI. This is a phenomenal achievement and everyone at Ultamation is incredibly proud.
Last week, whilst in Amsterdam at ISE 2019 (the largest integration systems trade show in the world) Ultamation were delighted to collect another Crestron Award … our 5th! This award was for Best GUI (Graphical User Interface) or in layman’s terms how our systems look and work through the touch panels.
This week saw the return of the largest Custom Installation Industry trade show with ISE 2019 at the RAI in Amsterdam. It is also the place where Crestron announce their annual award winners. This year we entered the Best GUI (Graphical User Interface) with a video entry showcasing our "Lamina" interface design.

It's simple, if you like it, let us know using #SIMPLified2LuckyDip and maybe even buy it - see our full suite here!
Ultamation have been developing a relationship with Hikvision recently, which has allowed us to bring Crestron integration to Hikvision NVR’s (Network Video Recorders). From reading various Crestron Programmers forums this is something that many of you have been after for quite some time, and something that no other module developers have managed to achieve.
Back in 2007, after 15 years in corporate IT and software development and a journey that took Sony PlayStation from a fridge sized prototype to the most popular console on the planet, Oliver Hall decided to move up north and set up his own business (Ultamation). Initially he was toying with creating our own home automation product. After considerable ‘tinkering’ and research, coupled with a visit to the CEDIA show down in London we quickly realised there was no need for us to create our own product – there were actually various brands already out there. And so began the process of which one best suited us, our values and which we felt would deliver the best solution for our clients.
Over the last few weeks Oliver has been asked to participate in two podcast that have been created specifically for the Custom Installation industry (we're guessing he's become so popular on the back of our recent global award win ;-)).
